This is being started in Honor of Star the NYC Pit Bull who was shot by NYC Police because her owner was in a seizure and was not able to control her, they approached and was charged by her, they shot her once and never even tended to the man after shooting her until the ambulance came to pick up the owner. I am in the beginning stages of creating a Law called "Star's Law" that will prevent this kind of act in the future. It will mandate a mandatory law stipulation where ALL Law Enforcement Officers are to be trained to call for an Animal Control Officer to come on scene and if necessary tranquilize the animal rather than shooting it.
If you have suffered the loss of a family pet by means of an officer shooting it, then I think you will be more than willing to sign this petition. also, if you truly love animals, I think you will also sign this petition.
